March?! Really? I’m not buying it. Anyhoo, here’s what I’ve been up to.
I finished The Hacienda by Isabel Cañas, which was obviously amazing and you all knew this. I listened to the audiobook, expertly narrated by Victoria Villareal and Lee Osorio. I’m not a big fan of romance novels, but the romance plot is in this restrained and very well-written. But the most important thing about this book is that’s it’s absolutely terrifying.
I finally finished Our Share of Night, by Mariana Enriquez, which I absolutely adored. So rich, and so terrifying.
I also took a lovely trip down memory lane with The Creator of the Wombles: The First Biography of Elisabeth Beresford, by Kate Robertson. If you’ve never encountered the Wombles, here’s what they look like:
Yes, you’re right, incredibly weird, aren’t they? Anyway, the book was fantastic, incredibly entertaining, and no previous Wombling required.
I was also incredibly unsettled by At The End of Every Day, by Arianna Reiche. You like creepy books about fictional theme parks? This one is for you!
Now I must return to my towering pile of unread books, and spend less time strategizing how to read all of them, and more time actually reading them.
